Experience More Comfort In Your Pregnancy, Birth & Postpartum


Acupuncture has been safely used in pregnancy and postpartum care for thousands of years. Acupuncture is recommended for:

  • Maintaining a healthy pregnancy & postpartum

  • Aches and pains

  • Digestive symptoms & nausea

  • Poor sleep & fatigue

  • Breech and malpositioned babies

  • Encouraging a timely labor

  • And more!


Moxibustion, or moxa for short, is a heating therapy using the herb mugwort, or artemisia, to stimulate the flow of energy toward specific points or tissues of the body. Stimulating specific points of the body can support natural healing of tissues or promote restoration of the movement of energy through the body.

Moxa can be applied with a compressed stick of mugwort, applied to the tips of needles during acupuncture, or used in a box or seat to address a wider area of healing, as is done for perineal healing in the postpartum.

In addition to traditional stick or needle moxa, I also offer perineal healing moxibustion with a peri-seat that can be used in your home visit.

Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine has been used by wise women healers for generations and is one of the most useful tools you can incorporate into your pregnancy, birth and postpartum experience.

I incorporate both Eastern and Western herbalism into my recommendations to support anything from fatigue and brain fog of pregnancy to after pains of the early postpartum and anything in between. I can also help you create your own herbal birth and postpartum kit.


Nutrition is an essential element to a healthy pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experience.

My nutrition consultations include an overview of whole food-based suggestions combined with natural supplements where needed.

Alignment & Movement

Pregnancy & postpartum require many adaptations of the musculoskeletal system. By addressing the changes that occur throughout pregnancy and postpartum, you optimize the balance and tension of your body's muscles and connective tissues to improve your comfort and make it easier for your baby to find the best position possible for birth.

As a certified Body Ready Method® professional and personal trainer, I use specific assessments to help you find the best exercises and movements to help your body maintain strength and mobility during pregnancy and postpartum. Learn more about BRM assessments by clicking here.

Stories From Happy Moms

I've had the privilege of working with Tristin for about 8 years. I originally went to see her after being recommended by a friend and have subsequently told basically anyone who will listen about how helpful and healing her work is. She has helped me with a number of issues but most notably, a difficult fertility journey and then 2 healthy pregnancies - one set of twins and a singleton. Her breadth of knowledge is remarkable and rare. I'm grateful for her curious and thoughtful approach. She is a force of sanity and balance in a health system that for me, can be overwhelming and anxiety producing.

I've been seeing Tristin for several years now and I have recommended her to so many people in my life, for a multitude of issues. For one - she seems to be a miracle worker on the fertility front. She has helped not just me, but my sister and more friends than I can count on my fingers - all with health issues or histories of miscarriages or years of infertility - carry out healthy pregnancies and beautiful, healthy babies. She has an amazing understanding of how the whole body works together and can tend to issues ranging from pain to temporary sickness to chronic illness. She also uses needles the most efficiently that I have ever experienced (meaning you won't be laying there with fifty needles - she knows where to put maybe four or five that are just as effective). I can't recommend her enough.


I couldn't recommend Tristin enough. My first ever experience with acupuncture was with Tristin, and she put me at ease immediately. We spent the first portion of the visit talking, so she could get to know me in a holistic way. By the time we got to needles, they were practically a minor detail! I walk away from my visits with Tristin feeling calm and empowered. She truly has a gift.
